skeletor212 i am trying to figure out how to build a custom sub 12inch box for my focus hatch like one speaker on each side so i still have enough room in my trunk any ideas?

SvviftSVT yeah, i am wanting space because... this...

but man, does it hit hard as ! (shameless plug for my friend's job.... nevermind.. got edited..)

Jon_SVT I was thinking about doing that...... creating 1 or 2 MDF 3/4'' spacers, I gotta measure the width of the internals for the sub though and see if it will fit in an 8'' hole. It's a prety beefy sub I got... rated to 800w RMS lol!

Is that necessary? definitely not.... why am I doing it? Because I can (most likely) lol!

Anyone have any other suggestions?

Also, does anyone know how much air space the stock box has?

Sniper Focus I just had a MDF spacer made up at a local shop, (maybe 3/4" thick if I recall) and I run a normal sized 8" sub. I think I have the shallower box also.

I think that how-to for the 10" sub used a 10" diameter MDF spacer, and they clearanced the box where needed.

SvviftSVT I'm about to be trying the same thing. I got a shallow mount kenwood coming. I think I have the shallower box. Not afraid to mod it. I read somewhere that you can heat up the plastic and "push" it ut some for more clearance

Jon_SVT Anyone know of an easy way to fit a 10'' into the stock SVT enclosure? The stock enclosure fits an 8'' iirc..... Any manufacturers make adapters or something? Time to start googling!

freemind Dayton makes some very good drivers FWIW

svtguy88 I don't know the mounting depth of the stock box, but if this will fit, it would work nicely. Mounting depth is 3 5/8''.

Dual 8 ohm voice coils mean a 4 ohm load on the amp, which is what you need if the stock sub is 4 ohms. I doubt the stock amp would be stable at 2 ohms, and it wouldn't make any power at 8 ohms, so four is what to shoot for, assuming that is what was stock.

This would work too, but it's mounting depth is a little deeper, but it also handles more power -- although if you are staying with the stock amp, you probably don't really need to worry at all.

They also make a low profile sub, but it's more money, and wouldn't really work with a stock amp, as it will end up with either a 2 or 8 ohm load, depending on how you wire it (it's a dual 4 ohm sub).

It probably sounds like I'm a Dayton Audio rep or something, but I'm not. I've just had good experiences with their products. Partsexpress offers other brands too, but for the money, I think the Dayton stuff would work nicely.

Outside of that, the Parts Express idea is a great idea.
